Solid Roller Setup/Best roller lifters?

Hi Everybody,
I had a couple of quick questions. I am currently building a full roller 351 cleveland for use in my car (obviously not daily driven). I have been searching for a set of roller lifters for my engine, and am unsure which brand is best. Also, I know that the SB Ford, including my 351C, share a common lifter diameter of .874. However, I am wondering what the difference is between roller lifters for a Windsor/SVO motor are versus a Cleveland engine. There isn't any offset, and pushrod size is the same, is the roller body height taller? Also, would it be advantageous to enlarge the lifter bores to .904? Would it be better to run dogbone vs. tiebar lifters? As a side note, the setup is pretty hot, 11.1:1 compression, 2.25/1.71 valves, filled ports, 255/265@.050 roller cam, Jesel shaft mount rockers, etc. There doesn't really seem to be alot of info on this stuff on the internet, as it is really out of the street realm.

Comp Cams Lifter's are proboly the best, I wouldnt enlarge the lifter bore unless its needed, you need a good machinest to tell you if the lifter bores are within tolerances, If the lifter bore is not in relation with the crakshaft centerline most machine shops can correct this with a larger diameter lifter bore, it is costly, but if your block needs this its well worth the money...
